Frankie Avalon would be a mainstay in the performing spotlight before even becoming a teenager. His
debut into the performing world would be via the then quickly growing medium of television, where he performed on the trumpet
across different multiple stations. Once he hit his teen years Frankie moved onto the band Rocco and the Saints, where he
would help write and perform numerous singles that would chart all over the Billboard 100.
Not content with just musical
performance, and too handsome to be confined to only audio recordings, Frankie soon tried his hand at acting. He would become
a staple actor in the 1960s beach genre, starring in dozens of comedies before branching out into other genres. He would work
with the embodiment of Western Americana John Wayne in The Alamo, before trying his chops in the surreal with ventures into
the sci-fi genre. Another accreditation is a huge role in Grease as well as frequent appearances on The Bing Crosby Show.
the 1980s Avalon had endeared himself to multiple generations of Americans and kept going strong into the 1980s and 90s, with
appearances in throwback film Back to the Beach and Martin Scorsese directed Casino.
musical career has spanned over six full studio albums and over three dozen hit singles. Frankie's debut self titled album
would begin to make a name for himself, which he would follow up with Swingin' on a Rainbow in 1959. Swingin' on a Rainbow
would chart at the #9 slot on the Billboard 200, marking the beginning of Avalon's meteoric rise to the highest echelons of
Frankie developed a knack for timing, putting out number one single after number one single. One
of his biggest hits, a track that still influences pop culture today, is his 1959 hit "Venus" which would chart at the #1
slot in the US. His other hit "Why" came out in the same year and again charted to the #1 spot, establishing 1959 as the Year
of Avalon. Besides his #1 hits, Frankie put out hit after hit that would chart, if not the #1 position, within the top 10.
This includes 1958's "DeDe Dinah" and "Ginger Bread" and 1959's "Bobby Sox to Stockings" and "Just Ask Your Heart".
Frankie has become so ingrained in pop culture that he often makes appearances as himself in major motion
pictures. He has even had Hollywood films devoted to depicting his life, specifically his 1960s beach-flick days. He's also
mentioned in various songs, from anarchist rockers System of a Down to a track from hip hop's Wu Tang Clan. He's also been
alluded to by the music group The Vaccines, the comedy You Don't Mess with the Zohan, and the hit TV show featuring title
serial killer Dexter.
If you've been to Disney World in the last three decades, you might remember hearing Frankie's
voice on the Cranium Command attraction. Frankie's track "Venus" was included as part of the soundtrack to the attraction.
Unfortunately, the attraction is now decommissioned.
